It is a special communication protocol that protects the information being transmitted across the web. It creates a secure connection between a person’s web browser and the server of the company they are interacting with, so all communication between the two is kept private and secure, safe from eavesdropping, and cannot be stolen or changed in transit.All the information that is passed through this secure connection is encrypted before being sent, and decrypted only when received on the other end.
If someone manages to access the information en route, it is useless to them because they cannot read what it says.
To enable SSL, a website needs to get an SSL Certificate. When your website has an SSL Certificate, your visitors will see a small padlock in front of your URL. Your URL will also start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. The S on the end stands for Secure. Depending on the internet browser they are using, there may also be a green bar and the word Secure in front of your domain name.
If you want to stay in business, you must protect your visitors and your customers by making sure that your website is completely secure.
